When you see the size of the Epson EX3240 you’re going to have some difficulty believing they were able fit so many great features into such a compact design. At 11.7 inches length by 9.2 inches width, and with just 3.2 inches in depth the EX3240 is remarkably small and can be picked up and taken on whatever appointments you may have in a day. It will fit on any size desk, and in a carry-on bag. Purchaser’s have come to expect Epson’s products to be good looking and sophisticated; the Epson EX3240 is both.

Performance:

Its no problem if you have more than one appointment. The Epson EX3240 is so small and light (only 5.30 pounds) it won’t be a drain on your energy to carry around. When you get home from work, you can even use it as an entertainment system. Surf the internet in glorious style with familiar sites shown in much greater detail than you’re used too. Connect your laptop or tablet and stream movies on the HDMI big screen for cinema-like clarity. This projector is an improvement on most home cinema systems and with a lamp life of 10,000 hours in ECO mode you don’t have to worry about replacements, no matter how many things you are using the Epson EX3240 for.

Whether you’re using the Epson EX3240 for entertainment or detailed office presentations, one thing you never need to worry about are room conditions. Bright sunlit room? No problem, just turn up the white brightness for perfect viewing without sacrificing resolution. With 3200 lumens of both colour brightness and white brightness you can use it anywhere.
